Even though I haven’t been blogging a lot, I have been crafting and even have a few finishes. First, I finished the Spice of Life afghan.
It’s not perfect, but I am happy with it. It seems I got a little too relaxed with the last 10 or so rows and so my sides veered out. I wanted to take the last 10 rows and the border out and re-do, but hubby wouldn’t hear of it. He liked it just the way it is and has claimed it as his own. He has even used it a few times :). I learned so much crocheting this blanket. Thank you to Sandra at Cherry Heart Blog and everyone involved for a wonderful Stitch A Long. The pattern is still available on Sandra’s blog if you still want to give it a try.
I also finished a couple of scarves. The first one was a gift to someone at my husband’s work. I thought I had taken a picture of it, but can’t seem to find it. This morning I finished the fun fiber scarf I was working on. It turned out so pretty! Love all the different fibers.
I can’t wait to wear it. I really enjoyed kitting the pink/red/tan ribbon fiber on this one.
Last night I finished a beautiful little project that I worked on this week.
This is Winter Whisper by Passione Ricamo. I call her Winter Princess. It is for a contest. Now that I have finished stitching her, I have to turn her into some kind of finish. Can’t wait to see what I come up with ;). I stitched her on 16ct Aida Ice Goddess from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie. LOVE this color and I am so in love with this design. My photo doesn’t do it justice.
I also picked up Under the Moonlight mermaid from the framer this last week. I had the framing done at Joann’s and I must say, the gal there did a great job. Aside from crooked beads, I am very pleased with it.
Now I need to figure out where to hang her. I have really run out of wall space.
I will be getting back to stitching The Raven Queen tonight. I will post a progress photo soon. I am getting close to finishing the stitching on this one. What are you working on finishing these days?
